How many years have you spent building your reputation? How much is it worth to you?

Managing a reputation in a crisis demands a solid skill set. With the effect of social media, an emergency situation can quickly get out of hand. Our crisis communications training workshop is run by two experienced comms professionals, Nicky Rudd of Padua Communications and Ann Wright of Rough House Media, providing guidance on the dos and don’ts of crisis comms. We will explore who should take responsibility in a crisis situation, preparing spokespeople and messages, handling social media and how to brief staff, stakeholders and the media.

This workshop is perfect for any business owner, marketing consultant or marketing professional, PR consultant and social media manager who has the responsibility for managing the public reputation of an organisation or who might be expected to deal with communications at the time of a major incident.

It is a practical session leading the group through a number of evolving scenarios that demand a range of responses. It will challenge your traditional thinking and leave you with a new confidence for remaining in control in emergency situations.

Who will benefit from crisis communications training?

Anyone who has the responsibility for managing the public reputation of an organisation or who might be expected to deal with communications at the time of a major incident will benefit from this session.
